WordPress 4.0 “Benny”

The Lane Blog Network has been upgraded to WordPress 4.0, codenamed “Benny”.


Manage your media with style

Media LibraryExplore your uploads in a beautiful, endless grid. A new details preview makes viewing and editing any amount of media in sequence a snap.


Working with embeds has never been easier

Paste in a YouTube URL on a new line, and watch it magically become an embedded video. Now try it with a tweet. Oh yeah — embedding has become a visual experience. The editor shows a true preview of your embedded content, saving you time and giving you confidence.

We’ve expanded the services supported by default, too — you can embed videos from CollegeHumor, playlists from YouTube, and talks from TED. Check out all of the embeds that WordPress supports.


Focus on your content

Writing and editing is smoother and more immersive with an editor that expands to fit your content as you write, and keeps the formatting tools available at all times.
